Cartel Coffee Lab -- Downtown Tucson

A selection of YayBig Southwest prints were hung at the Cartel Coffee Lab --
on November 17th -- in the downtown Tucson location:

Print to sculpture!  

Using John Paul Gutierrez's print, Metalphysic foundry made a 3D image, and had it printed at Shapeways.  One can also twirl the 3D image around online at SketchFab.  The piece is being shown now at the Tucson Sculpture Festival 2015 (I wrote about it on my other blog).

A big thanks to Chris Bardey, Shaunna FosterKelly S Hestir, and Federico Villalba, for helping me set up the pop-up gallery in Las Cruces' West End Art Depot.

Meanwhile, 40 minutes down I-10 in El Paso, I visited "The Barnyard" in the Segundo Barrio, and admired the graffiti art on the walls:

After the opening, I raced back to Tucson to gallery sit for the YayBig Print Exchange show at YayBig Gallery.
